Abstract

The present investigation was carried on “Effect of different height of pruning on flowering and yield of Jasmine (Jasminum auriculatum L.) Mullai.The field experiment was carried out at the Department of Horticulture, Faculty of Agriculture, Annamalai University, Tamil Nadu during the year 2015. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design with three replications and six treatments. Four years old Jasmine Mullai plants were selected for investigation. In this investigation jasmine plants were pruned at different height viz. T1 control (No pruning) T2 pruning at 20 cm from ground level, T3 pruning at 30 cm from ground level, T4 pruning at 40 cm from ground level, T5 pruning at 50 cm from ground level, and T6 pruning at 60 cm from ground level The effect of these treatments was noted on flowering and yield of Mullai. (Jasminum auriculatum L). The pruning at 50 cm from ground level emerged significantly superior for flowering parameters like days taken for first flower (60.04 days), days taken for 50 per cent flowering ( 73.51 days), and yield parameters like weight of 100 flower buds (9.15 g), number of flowers per plant ( 3328.64), and yield of flowers per hectare ( 83.21q ha-1) in Mullai. The next best treatment was pruning at 40 cm height from ground level in respect of yield of Mullai. This might be due to the accelerated mobility of photosynthetic from the source to the sink as influenced by growth hormone released or synthesized due to higher plant growth.
